While it may not officially be Springtime just yet, it certainly has felt like it in Brentwood this week.
The weekend forecast looks to be mostly cloudy with humidity above 65 percent for both Friday and Saturday and high temperatures in mid-40s and low-50s.
If you just put away your rain gear, it looks like you may have to break it out again on Sunday, with chances of rain at 100 percent.
Clouds or not, the weekend is full of events in and around Brentwood. Here’s a look at some of what’s happening this weekend.
